    Please post the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list file. Also, try running sudo apt-get update and then run the Update manager again. – terdon May 20 '14 at 13:18

    @nux Dupe-closing should help. That's the point of it. Rather than answering the exact same question infinite times, we answer it once and push everybody else there. – Oli May 20 '14 at 14:33

To solve this problem , open terminal then try these commands :

sudo apt-get clean 
cd /var/lib/apt 
sudo mv lists lists.old
